The rumored larger-screened Kindle that should be announced Wednesday just had some basic specs leak out, as well as a few possible shots. Is there any hope for our nation's beleaguered journalists? Updated.
Well, maybe. The Kindle DX is rumored to sport a 9.7-inch screen, the ability to add annotations (could this mean a touchscreen?), and long-awaited PDF support. The New York Times is rumored to be chopping its monthly subscription costs from $13.99 to $9.99, though we wouldn't hold out hope that this'll save their industry. We'll keep you updated as more info leaks out.
Update: Looks like this Kindle DX is designed to appeal to students and textbook publishers. The Wall Street Journal reports that some chemistry and computer science students at several American universities will receive the new textbook-friendly Kindle. Specifically named so far are Case Western, Pace, Princeton, Reed, Darden School at the University of Virginia, and Arizona State. It'll also apparently include an actually functional web browser, though we'll believe that when we see it. They'll be looking to compare the experiences of those with the Kindle and those with those ancient glued sheets of dried tree pulp. [Engadget, WSJ]
